Recent suspicious activity leads us to believe possible scam artists are working the Merrimack Valley area with an attempt to scam and possible steal from residents. There have been a few incidents in Methuen and in the surrounding area where two men attempt to gain entry into residents houses. The two men approach the home owners as surveyors who are there to survey their land in reference to upcoming tree removal in the area. The two men attempt to separate home owners by asking them to walk the yard. At some point one man will ask for a drink and try to follow the resident into their house.

The men are driving a white SUV and have the tailgate down to cover the rear license plate.

The men are described as:
Suspect 1: Approx 30 - 40, Hispanic male, 5'11", muscular build

Suspect 2: Approx 30 - 40, Hispanic male, 5'10", thin build

If you observe the above subjects in your neighborhood please call 911.

As a general rule of thumb if you have not requested someone to come to your residence to perform some work, do not allow someone into your house or accompany them around your propertry.

When in doubt please call the police.
